Noah more: Noah and The Whale split up

British indie band Noah and The Whale have announced that they’re to make like the Red Sea and part ways. They first made waves with their song 5 Years Time, a track found on their first album Peaceful, the World Lays Me Down. Their folk beginnings slowly transitioned into more of a middle of the road sound, with their later albums being sometimes described as alternative rock.

The band released a statement overnight: “We have had an incredible eight years together and are immensely grateful to everyone who has helped us along the way…we would like to take this opportunity to give special thanks to all of our amazing fans, who have supported us so magnificently over the years and made everything possible”. Aww, isn’t that nice.

No details have been given on what the five members plan to do next, although links were given to five personalised websites which hints at Charlie, Tom, Urby, Fred and Michael’s ongoing desire to make music.
